    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Stressing...

    I feel like I am going nuts , stressing about jobs, finances, and especially my purpose in life. I try my hardest at everything, I mean like when I went into an interview tuesday, was sincere, honest, determined just seems like it's not enough for employers to hire you? Being not considered for a position when you are and do those things has given me discouragement.

    I can sympathize. I stress over my finances, & my purpose in life too. I was diagnosed with lupus last year, but have had the stress problem for years. I'm on generic Lexapro, plus Atarax for the anxiety. So far nothing seems to help with the stressing problem. I've been on Zoloft, Effexor, Welbutrin, Buspar, but nothing has really helped. All you can do is to keep trying, & surround yourself with family & friends that can keep you encouraged. If it wasn't for my church, too, I sure would be in worse condition than I am.
